Wow, I noticed the dates. It's been months since I added anything to this blog! Well, I have been doing other things.

It has been even longer since I had challenges on my mind, but this card has been entirely inspired by them.

Yes, there are three challenges I would like to enter this in, and I had all three in mind before I started this creative process.

First there is Sheilagh Roxbury who has been encouraging people to take part in her challenge, in the Cards Galore group on facebook. I just missed last month's so I really wanted to make sure I entered this time around. This month's theme is decoupage. As luck would have it I had just come past this cute little bee going through my stock, and wondered what I would use it for. So that decision was made quickly.

Then Kanban started a brand new challenge, obviously they require the use of their products. And guess where I got that gorgeous topper from...? Oh, yes! So I took base card and a frame for adding a sentiment, or name or number from Kanban goodies too. With an anything goes theme to get them started, I was lucky of course to be able to fit it in so nicely.

Then I read that Delicious Doodles are having a die cut challenge this time around. Well, the topper and the sentiment frame were die-cuts too, but I doubt that is what was meant. It is a whole different kind of die cut. Luckily I had these fine pink die cut trellis hearts that work well with the image echoing the hearts already in there. 

In a sense the card remains unfinished. I would like to add it to the stock to sell . It currently consists of only one card, so any addition would be welcome. So I wanted to leave room for sentiments, name, age, or whatever in the top corner and/or on the little frame. I may end up using it myself too, but at present haven't immediately got an occasion or person in mind. I am sure you all have enough imagination to have an idea of the finished product!

I could use it for the swap I run on facebook, together wit a fantastic admin team. We call it "We love our Card Swap" a name selected by the group members. That says enough, doesn't it... Our theme this month is 3D so decoupage would be fine, but I really want to challenge myself to make my first ever K-card using the pro. Watch this space...

Please let me know what you think, and, ehmmm, wish me luck. ;-)
